Kapcsandy Family Winery is an award-winning, small estate-grown winery bottling three distinct red wines from Kapcsandy State’s Lane Vineyard. Made in very small quantities, these wines are rare gems.

”The 2012 Roberta’s Reserve (100% Merlot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak). It is a bigger wine with 14.5% alcohol. It comes from a block of 10-year-old vines planted in heavy clay soils. Stunning aromatics include notes of mocha, chocolate fudge, black cherries and berry fruit intertwine with hints of incense, burning embers and charcoal. This full-bodied, opulent, lavishly rich, voluptuously textured Merlot is about as great as Napa Merlot can be. Enjoy it over the next 15-20 years.

"This family-owned winery is situated at the southern end of Napa Valley, a few miles east of Yountville, a town that is becoming the epicurean center for Napa Valley. Kapcsandy produces between 2,500 and 4,000 cases of wine each year from their 15.5 acres of vineyards. They have added a couple of wrinkles to their classic lineup of Bordeaux varietals, including a crisp, stainless steel-fermented and aged white called Furmint, the well-known grape of Hungary, the country from which Lou Kapcsandy emigrated.” Robert Parker

"The 2012 Roberta's Reserve (Merlot) is another drop-dead gorgeous wine from Kapcsándy. Mocha, black cherries, plums, licorice and menthol meld together in an effortless, seamless wine endowed with sublime grace and class. Lovely savory and mineral notes support the pliant finish. What a gorgeous wine this is." Antonio Galloni
